Better than more expensive brands Jan. 28 2011
By Steve83 - Published on
I do a LOT of wiring - professionally, and at home - and these are easily the best crimpers I've found. Not only are they built right (cutter outboard of crimpers), but they have 2 crimp jaws AND 2 final crush jaws (something that's not mentioned in the description, and barely visible in the photo). The crush jaws are really the clincher on these UNDERPRICED pliers: once you've crimped the connector to the wire, crushing it makes it ~3x tighter, and less-likely to pull apart, even if you try. With these crimpers, unlike most higher-priced brands, you can actually produce crimps that look like industrial wiring. And they cost ~1/3 of those other brands. The only reason I didn't give them 5* is because they're not made in USA.

the best at any price July 10 2012
By John A. Lucier - Published on
I've had mine for about 16 years now and they are great. Look closely at the die profile in the pictures of these as well as others-note the dies in the jaws of similar products by Klein and others do not have as versatile of functions. The GB crimpers allow you to fold over the ends to make a perfect "B" (laying on its side that is), correct it if you didn't, THEN tighten it up afterward. These are the best of their type for any money. I have certifications in Mil Spec Aviation micro wire bundle repair, did professional car audio installations for many years, and have two roll away cabinet drawers full of just pliers- mostly various kinds of electrical. If I have to crimp a terminal, this pair, and only this pair, are the ones I reach for.

The best for the money! You can't beat the price for this tool. If you're going to be using butt connectors for even ONE job, get this tool. It makes the connections solidly, and securely. This is SO much better than trying to crimp with a pair of wire cutters (dikes). I have used mine many times, and always kick myself for not getting one of these sooner.

Great crimper April 14 2008

I had been using these cheap stamped steal crimpers for years and they where ok. I finally decided to try something real this is 100% better. The main thing is that they have a real handel and the crimp is wide so it is much stronger.

much better than cheap crimping tools Feb. 15 2012
By mdrn28 - Published on

This crimping tool works great and makes a much more solid crimp compared to the cheap tools that you can get at the local hardware store. I always had problems with loose wires, but with this tool the results are much better. At this price, it's a no-brainer. So far, I've used this with Anderson Power Pole contacts (15 and 30 amp), and a variety of insulated and non-insulated terminals, and it works great on everything so far.
